    Built Bars were my go to, love them but for me the carb count was to high so I had to stop eating them. But they ARE really good

    The ENTIRE bagel???? Like, SERIOUSLY?!

    I could really eat anything I wanted to 6 months out...however I found out I was not being mindful about WHAT I eating AT ALL. so when I started to really think about what I was putting in my tummy it all changed for me...I am a carb girl so I totally stopped all carbs and stayed around 30 grams per day and the weight started to fall of. This however to took almost 2 years to get my body and mind in the right place. I know when I do not chew my food and eat too fast my pouch tells me so. So yes you can but no don't do it. N not worth it. Load up on protein and veg first and then maybe later if you do want that bagel then you can have it. But by then you mostly won" t want it... Everyone is different best of luck on you journey

    Any pre op smokers

    I had to quit before they would even schedule me, It took me about a month until my test showed negative. Nicotine Cotinine (Urine) is what the test is, and you can get test strips on Amazon. Unfortunately I stopped for 6 months and started smoking again. I am trying to quit for good Good Luck

    Carbs after surgery

    I am almost 2 years out and nope can't do them any more. It will just take you some time. You will adjust your eating. You can still eat that stuff but like everyone says, no nutritional value at all. You really want to eat protein first, some veg and a splash of rice it you must. But I would just stay away from it all together. Best of luck on your journey. It will all fall into place

    Pre-Op Appts/Weight

    I did gain weight, about a 1 month before I was going to get my surgery scheduled they added on an additional month visits. The doctors wanted to make sure I was living the bariatric life style. I t was all good. I managed to drop about 10 lbs. and we moved forward

    Nicotine Test

    I smoke, and it took me about 1 month to finally not have it show up. With that being said doctor told me I needed to be 3 months clean on both cigarettes' and weed prior to my surgery. that was very hard to do but I did it...I wanted this surgery REALLY REALLY bad.....
